Default How many miles do you get out of your FULL tank of gas?

Just wondering what other owners get for mileage on a full tank of gas? and how much to fill it?

Usually spend $45-$55 to fill and get about 300 miles.

EDIT: What do you drive? and what do you have done to it?


I'm basically running stock, but I feel like I'm getting ****ty gas mileage, or I think I could be getting alittle better.

Outback Sport

Mostly stock OBS - K&N Panel air filter, Brullen cat-back exhaust. I get around 24-25mpg average, netting me about 320 miles per tank when I like to fill up (320/24=13.33 gal)

I could probably just barely squeeze 350 miles out of the tank, but that'd be 14.7 gal where the car runs dry. I've run it dry twice at 14.7gal - you can't get that last gallon out of the tank - I've tried both uphill and down. Maybe if you were driving sideways across a hill?

This includes my mudflaps, hoodbra (with bug bockers), and saggin' wagon rear struts. I'll be removing the bug blockers from the hoodbra, and replacing my rear suspension w/ Forester XT struts and springs for a bit of a rake, and adding a lip, airdam, wheel spoilers and undertrays for more aerodynamics. Hoping to get up to a 28mpg average. Add that with driving technique I should be able to get 30+ city.

Completely stock 2003 WRX (15.9 gallon tank):

Best case (locking it at 65 mph on the highway thus barely ever hitting boost): 29 mpg
Worst case (hitting full boost at least once per drive): 17-18 mpg

Average: varies between the two extremes depending on what I'm doing.

I know the feeling. I drive a Jetta TDI (540 miles/tank btw) and it is painfully slow in all respects. And I want to keep miles off my T/A. So I imagine if/when I end up getting a WRX as a semi-DD I'll be pretty rough on it.

Impossible! How the hell are you achieving that? I couldn't even get 300 on a stock WRX. Now I have a VF43 / STI TMIC / TBE and I'm lucky to break 250 miles. What gives?

BTW, I've averaged 20.6 MPG over 20,000 miles.
